Humble (TX) hospital’s community garden sends 500 pounds of produce to local food bank

  • Date: 10/16/2023

Before the opening of Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital’s community garden in June 2022, officials said the space where it now resides was a bit of a nuisance.

Nikki Roux, vice president and chief operating officer of MHNH, said the garden used to be a small roadway before adjacent structures were completed, enclosing the space.

“It was not positively thought about because there was a lot of smoking that went on out there, and it was a main thoroughfare,” she said.

Now, Roux said the community garden not only serves as a tranquil space for hospital staff and patients to enjoy, but as a source of fresh produce for the hospital’s local food bank.
